hoda loves this. >> just a minute. this is actually wine. >> yes. >> it started out as we make skits and -- >> for your show. >> for our show. >> a talk show. >> we do different kinds of things, hidden camera -- looks so great. >> slurp it back, baby. >> you know what this is? this is success. >> actually, it is gerard's urine specimen. >> whatever. and what is this? >> don't ask. >> okay. >> gerard, that's enough. >> so, okay, so talk show -- >> so we actually got a request from a super producer duo from norway called stargate, they work here around new york. and they have lots of billboard hits with rihanna and with -- >> beyonce, i think. >> beyonce. and so they asked us to do a sort of private favor for them to make a mocumentary for them. we said, can we ask a favor in return? >> i'm just drinking. you should listen. it is really exciting. >> he's going to suck blowing
bubbles now. >> and then we asked for a favor in return, can we make a song together. they were like, sure, sure. and then we figured out if we are going to make a hit song out of this, it would seem kind of pathetic, because we're comedians and shouldn't do hit songs. so we decided to make an anti-hit so we could come back to our talk show and say, folks, you know, we had this opportunity, we had stargate and blew it. we couldn't think of anything else other than what the fox says. >> what? what the fox says. >> in norwegian -- >> we are actually -- >> what the fox says. >> but the idea sort of back fired on us because -- >> here you are, major hits. >> were you surprised? 100 million is ridiculous on any standard. >> it is kind of -- it is the first time i actually heard the number right now and it is kind of austin powers number, isn't it?

them, they get -- >> i have three dogs that do it and drives me crazy. >> if they're jumping on someone, don't spray the dog. this worked and it reminds me when caesar milan does the -- this is a product that at first i wasn't quite sure. it is called straighten up. put your arms straight up and turn this way. >> this is not going to end well. >> i got to get this on. >> we have 30 seconds. >> i know. okay, put your fingers inside. over your head. this is meant to help correct -- put your arms through. >> straight through. >> okay. like a backpack. >> you can imagine, when i first took this out of the box -- >> i haven't one of these on since last night. uh-huh. >> okay. i have to say this is such a simple idea. >> you're standing straighter. >> that it pushes your shoulders so you don't hunch forward. you have to force yourself. and last but not least, they're telling me to go, go to
we're back on this try day friday with more "today." relationships can be tricky. if you had a hard time understanding the opposite sex, we enlisted some help. >> back by popular demand to answer your question, two people with a lot to say. "elle's" advice columnist e. jean carroll and matthew hussey. >> you are our favorite odd couple. we love having you guys on. >> you're our favorite odd couple. >> thank you. thank you for coming off the mountain to be with us. >> chris writes in, what should you do when you want to see and address issues in your marriage but your spouse thinks everything is fine but the whole situation is making you miserable.
what to do? >> i think you should get out of the house, get out of the neighborhood, pack a picnic, a loaf of bread, a jug of wine, head out, go for a hike, spread a blanket in the grass and then tell him what you're thinking. not what you're feeling, tell him what you're thinking, let him hear it. if all goes well, you can seal the deal on the blanket. >> matthew? >> okay. for me, the tone of this question says it all. when she says, i'm miserable, and he doesn't know it, that doesn't suggest to me a problem in the relationship that's a woman too afraid to confront the problem. and the problem with that is those types of people -- >> she's like -- >> forget the wine.
forget the picnic, forget the blanket. >> even if i gave her the courage to go and say something, the moment he'll do what a guy does, she'll be too weak to stand up to that. she has to figure out her relationship with herself before she confronts him. that involves core confidence. i'm not going to have my self-esteem tied to losing this man. that's why they don't say something, they're afraid of loss. if i can say it is more detrimental to my life to be in a relationship of pain than it is to be alone, now she's going to go and get the things she wants. >> that was good. >> even e. jean is impressed. >> i think matthew is a secret woman. you understand women. deeply. >> thank you. >> sheryl, is it okay to date your ex's best friend? >> if the breakup was clean, you respect one another, and the guy is hot, yes. if he has called you in the last six months crying, no. if you have called him in the
last six months for a booty call, no. >> i like that the principles are based on how hot he is. the fact is, firstly, what you can't find another one -- another guy among the 3 billion guys in the world that is not his best friend. if you can't -- if he's the love of your life, go for it. if this is a whim because you're lonely or in pain or trying to get back at the guy, don't do it. god forbid you're on the receiving end of that one day. >> there aren't that many good guys out there. there are not -- matthew, you are one in a trillion. >> i know that, but that's very different from saying there are no great guys out there. >> cane has a question. is it appropriate to expect a date to pay for most or all of the nights out or at what point in the date process should i begin reaching for the check to share some of the responsibilities. >> it is not about finances. it is about getting lucky. if a man asks you out and you go to dinner and you like him and you think later down the road at
some point you're going to go to bed with him, he pays. if he asks you out, you go to dinner and you don't like him and you know never, ever, ever are you going to get in bed with this guy, you offer to pay and then he pays. >> like being a hooker? >> but the point is, that was about the -- that's not about the first date. that's about you're a few dates in, what do you do? do you keep letting him pay? i don't like to let a lady pay, no. but here's the point. a lady shouldn't expect it. i think a man should pay but a lady shouldn't expect it. >> a lady can pay by inviting him to her apartment for dinner. not for that. you pervert, no. just to make dinner for him. every man loves that. >> i think it is tough for women
in the position that they're in today to want equality in every other area, and then in a relationship say, but i don't want to contribute in that area. i think that sends out a confused message. i think for women -- especially since you guys have more money than us now. so for most women in that position, once they get into the relationship, if they want to be there, then they should be contributing. by the way, it is a guy's prerogative, if he wants to insist he pays for everything, she has the choice to let him. i think the expectation is what ruins relationships. >> i think it changes the dynamic of the relationship. >> if you don't like a guy, don't pick up the check. >> okay. >> if you don't like the guy, don't pick up the check. how to get the layered look for fall without adding bulk. it is very important. you disgust me.
not, and then you're hot again, welcome to my world, how can you still look stylish? here to show you how it's done is "lucky" magazine editor in chief eva chen. nice to see you again. you're doing it perfectly, aren't you? >> all about the layers. some days it is freezing. some days it is sweltering. you have to mix and match. >> let's start with our first model. we want jane to come on out. jane has a great weekend look. >> she looks adorable. >> how cute does she look? jane is wearing a look that i think is perfect for the weekends. all about the layers as i said before. she's wearing a boxier kind of looser top but then pairing it with skinny jeans, important for proportions. if you're wearing something boxy up top, wear something skinny on the bottom. >> conversely true as well? >> fitted on top, wear something fuller on the bottom. you don't want to wear skin tight from head to toe. >> how many layers does have on? >> you can take the sweatshirt on, sweatshirts are having a moment now.
>> i love sweatshirts. >> they're cool. >> she has a sweatshirt on underneath. >> tie it around your waist. >> exactly. >> how cute. >> that grunge look. >> with a scrunchy. >> way to go, jane. >> so cute. >> thank you. >> next up we have adriana, the collegiate-inspired look. tell us about that. >> a lot of us probably have that varsity jacket buried in the back of our closet. break it out. it is coming back. she has a varsity jacket on. when you take it off, she has a denim vest. >> i love denim vests. >> because it is sleeveless, it doesn't add a lot of bulk. >> such a cute look. >> just feel free. and turtlenecks, we're all obsessed with turtlenecks. >> really? >> anything you have from the summer, throw a turtleneck on underneath. you could wear one under this dress and it would work. >> i could? >> make sure it is fitted. >> got it.
thanks, adriana. in the office, which you never know if it is going to be hot or cold -- >> megan looks adorable. >> a tall drink of water. >> she is. >> she looks amazing, i think. first of all, the office. could be 20 degrees, 200 degrees, all about calibrating and having the layers. first, she has an ox blood moto jacket on. we love this, it is unexpected rather than black and the long oversized tee. she has a long sweater on, which, again, a shirt underneath is sleeveless, so your arms are free. you don't look like a michelin man and the shirt covers up the hips. >> it is okay to wear a jacket shorter than your shirt. what about the infinity scarf. i see them all the time around new york. >> these scarves are great. you have a scarf, there is an art to it. this one they do it for you. loop it over your neck twice. >> next up we have jessica. ready for a cocktail party. >> yeah. >> we think this is such a great
look at lucky. she's cocktail ready appropriate. a big trend on the runway for real life is the lingerie trend. women wearing lacy camisoles. >> i like that. very feminine. >> very feminine. how do you wear it without looking too sexy? don't want to go all the way out there. this is about layers, knits, chiffon, a beautiful camisole and she put a sheer layer over the camisole so it doesn't show too much. don't be afraid to wear color in the winter either. look at that great green skirt. >> thank you, jessica. >> thank you. >> last up, karen. she's all about date night. >> this is a cute date night look, we think. she has a little pea cut coat on. >> they never go out of style. >> she takes that coat off, what you can see is she has a cute little sweater on and satin skirt. satin is huge on the runway. >> i like that because the back
is long. >> this the kind of look you can wear to a date. a guy will find it sexy and cute and you can put the coat back on and go out with your girlfriends and go out to dinner. >> let's bring our ladies back out. that's great, eva. all great looks. >> good to see you again. for more on where to buy the complete looks, go klgandhoda.com. >> do you want to be more flexible? >> maybe. and we have country critters. >> the hits keep coming right after this. alaska is a very extreme environment. >> 30 foot seas, hurricane force winds. >> we go in in really bad
situations and we always pull it off. >> we hit the water. game on. >> watch it. underwater. go! >> the reason i love doing this job is to save lives. >> a lot of the times the coast guard kms before the family. >> when he is out flying i do pray. >> i love you daddy. >> everything they throw at us, we do.
fall is finally here. >> and for every season there's a reason to watch. wake up with al, weekday mornings on the weather channel. >> it's just right. all of your local weather, travel updates and top stories. you just can't beat this kind of weather. >> everything you need to know first thing. we're like a killer app in your morning. >> so tap into us. >> so wake up with al. weekday mornings at 6 krk and 10:00. only on the weather channel. you disgust me.
